There are so many great ways to make the most of car conversations. Sing a song your kids learned in Sunday school. Ask them to tell you their memory verse. Tell them what going to church means to you. Tell them why you think it’s important that they go to church too.
It doesn’t have to be complicated or scary. Tell them what they’re doing right and forgive them for what they’ve done wrong. Help them get excited about worship. Just talk!
